Is there a word that always make you trip?

You know, one that always has you questioning if it's written one way or another and you always have to look it up?
Ex.: adresse or address - apartment or appartement - loose or lose

As I've grown older, I question myself on spelling. I was a straight A student on English until my junior year, I received a B...I was so disappointed.

I don't trip up, but I cannot find any definitive information on whether it's cancelled or canceled.

I certainly do, it's Rhythm (I had to look it up to include it here, and got it wrong the first time). I'm a writer who has written a good deal about music, and no matter how many times I include this word in my work, I spell it wrong. I find it impossible to memorize, so irrationally awkward is its construction, and I'm not a stupid man. But were the person who conceived of its spelling still in the land of the living, I'd dearly like to lock him or her in a room with loud rhythmic music pumping out at maximum volume until a new spelling was agreed upon.

Opportunity. I always want to write "oppurtunity" until a big red line appears under it and murders my writing flow.

There are a few, but I can't think of them right now. "Occurred" is one of them. I finally got "embarrassed" down, though!

Depends on whether you're British or American. British English doubles the "l," US English doesn't (also "travelled/traveled," "quarrelled/quarreled," etc.).

I have trouble with acknowledgement/acknowledgment. I have to type it and see it to know which is correct.
